I Just Didn't Have it in Me

I just didn't have it in me to blog yesterday.  Here I am today but, fading fast.  As usual, it was a busy weekend.  I don't know why I have the need to cram so much in.  One of the things we did this weekend was go to the movies.  We saw World War Z.  I do like action/scifi movies and this was highly entertaining.  Both Bob and Ed liked it too.  It was really cold in the theater and really hot outside.

I did finish my LHN Virtues Faith.  I did do the little sheep in fuzzy Wisper Thread.  Once I iron the piece, I will fluff him up with my bunco brush.  I am finally going to get started on my first Threadworks Primitive kit from the Ladies Prim Society.  I am excited about that.
 I did get my Stacy Nash book My Name is Lydia.  Talk about some sensational patterns.  Katy has asked me not to give this one away.  I may even succumb to purchasing the NPI thread.
There is also some really great finishing directions like using the walnut shell dye to age the piece.  
I have some of that stuff so I'm already rarin' to go.  

I will hopefully be posting pictures of my sister's birthday pressie soon.  I'l  be shipping it out tomorrow.  

Thanks for the great comments.  I just love hearing from you all.  
Hope you are keeping cool.  Thank goodness for AC!
Keep on Stitching


  1. We don't go to the movies much unless it's at the drive-in and then we only have to fight the June bugs. I hate them but I think I'd rather put up with them than the freezing cold theater.

    I really like "Faith". I especially like that little black sheep.

    I use walnut dye a lot. This book looks like one I'd like. I can't wait to see what you stitch from it.

  2. Faith looks great Monica. I love the fluffy black sheep.
    Enjoy your new book....lots of new treats and finishing ideas.

  3. Hi Monica! Love your faith finish. I'm starting a new piece tonight and I'm looking forward to it after working with just greens for a few days now.
    I always bring a sweater with me when ever we head out down here during the NC summers. Air conditioning is indeed a blessing, but when we sit through a movie or a meal while we're freezing, it isn't any fun. So I carry a sweater and Bill carries a long sleeved shirt.
    Have never heard of the walnut shell dye, and I'm going to look into it. I do have some crushed walnut shells so maybe that's a beginning. I love the aged look on so many pieces though.
    Love to visit here.
